We always eat at beach Break Cafe on the drive from San Diego to LA: you can have breakfast at any time but the lunches are spectacular too- huge bowls of soup, the fresh, spicy fish tacos, the fabulous sandwiches. You can easily see the workers in the kitchen chopping fresh ingredients and they are generous with the avocadoes and the yummy applewood smoked bacon: Gary and Zell Dwelley are sticklers for quality. Don't miss the fresh tangerine juice, if available, and ALWAYS save room for Zell's coffeecake; pure and simple, the way coffeecake is supposed to be. Our family with 3 teengers and 2 parents orders 3 or 4 plates of food and we still can't finish it all!

Four words-- Banana Crunch French Toast
Any time I'm in the San Diego area, the highlight of my trip is visiting the Beach Break Cafe. The food is excellent, the service is friendly, and the atmosphere is great. Don't miss out on having breakfast at this gem.
